Shah Rukh Khan to remake Asuran in Hindi?
Last day, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan celebrated his birthday and, like always, wishes flew in from all across the globe. A party was hosted by him for selected invitees and two notable guests from the South were Tamil filmmakers Vetrimaaran and Atlee. While Atlee and SRK teaming up is almost a certainty, the photo with Vetrimaaran has fueled a fresh set of speculations.
There are reports about Shah Rukh Khan watching Vetrimaaran’s recently released ‘Asuran’ and being highly impressed by it. Apparently, the star has plans to remake the film but it is not sure if he will be starring in it. SRK’s close friend and filmmaker Karan Johar had also watched ‘Asuran’ and tweeted in praise of it. Karan had written,
What a film #Asuran is!!! Hits you hard and is riveting right through! Blown away by #VetriMaaran’s craft and story telling!!!! And @dhanushkraja is beyond amazing! Rock solid performance! His calm before the storm is unmatchable! Please watch it! Cinema victory!
‘Asuran’ starring Dhanush and Manju Warrier has emerged as a big success, both critically and commercially. The film is already being remade in Telugu with Venkatesh in the lead. It will be really huge if SRK gives his nod to star in the Hindi version. Let’s wait for an official word.
